August Monthly Color Challenge

>> Friday, August 14, 2020

 August is here! Time is flying or at least summertime is as the days and nights blend into each other. It's time for another monthly color challenge from Jen - and this time it's pink!

Monthly Color challenge 2020 Patterns by Jen

Jen has an affinity for flamingos which is the bird inspiration for this month's block. Read all about it over at Jen's blog.

Pink is a color that I didn't really embrace until after I started quilting and even then, I started with light pink. Now pink has become one of my favorites! It adds a punch of brightness and can really add to a quilt's overall design. I'm almost positive there's a pink out there for everyone ;)

My block this month is made of two fat quarters I had in my stash. It took a bit of choosing to make sure there was enough contrast between my pinks and that they would read light and dark when beside each other.

I couldn't resist taking a photo of the pink block with my new pink outdoor shoes - they are my Mother's Day gift from my daughter this year. I love them! They are getting a lot of use right now while I enjoy the warm weather and my pool.

The block pattern is free at Jen's blog until the end of the month - click to go to her blog to get the pattern.

Remember there will be a link up at the end of the  month and posting your block at Jen's link up enters you to win some great quarterly prizes! Prizes for July, August and September blocks will be drawn on October 1.

There are several bloggers showing off their pink blocks this month - go visit and see.

This month's block is easy so there's really no reason not to join us in the challenge ;)

Take care and stay safe,

Sarah V.

There's easy piecing to be had in my Dropping In pattern too! I'm hosting a sew along for it right now. But anytime you read this post you're welcome to join in - click here for the sew along introductory post to read all about it!
